I've been invited on a St. Joe's beach trout excursion this weekend. I've always fished from a boat. I know I'll have to make at least ONE trip to Academy and possibly Cabela's on the way down.

I need a list of things besides R&R and lures.

How about

wade belt
stringer (think positive)
wade boots or water shoes (shuffle, shuffle)
needle nose, forceps, or hook remover

one of those small tackle boxes you hang around your neck work nice

A long stringer, atleast 25 feet, some pliers, something to carry your lures in, something to tie all that off to, and you're pretty much good to go.

Silver spoons and 51mrs are great surf baits that you might not normally use in the bays. All of your normal topwaters and soft plastics will work well.

To avoid getting a handful of hooks from the above mentioned 51mrs, get a net that will attach to your waiding belt. They are made with a strecth cord so you can grab the handle, net a fish all without undoing from your belt.

Like Capn said, silver spoons are great. You may want to add a little wire leader to it if the macks are there. They like silver spoons as much as trout.
